Downtown Harrisonburg Engagement | Colleen & TJ

September 19, 2019

Tonight was a GORGEOUS night for an engagement session with Colleen and TJ! They are truly the funniest couple and were so comfortable in front of the camera (despite how many times they told me they rarely get photos taken 😉 )

One of my favorite things about photographing sessions in Downtown Harrisonburg is that it’s different every single time I photograph there. I adore that I always discover a new place to photograph people (like new parking garages 😉 ) and don’t think I’ll ever get sick of walking around downtown with my couples.

I also love that Colleen and TJ wanted to get some portraits at JMU! This is where these cuties met, so OF COURSE I decided that photographing them at such a special place was a need.


Colleen & TJ,

Thank you so much for asking me to be your wedding photographer, and for being such a wonderful couple to work with during this process! This has made me so excited for your wedding day and just wants September 2020 to get here as soon as possible (and maybe a cute pup will make an appearance at this time next year 😉😂) Enjoy your sneak peeks — I just can’t wait for you two to see the rest!

WHY we're the perfect match


Far far away, behind the word mountains, far from the countries Vokalia and Consonantia, there live the blind texts. Separated they live in Bookmarksgrove right at the coast of the Semantics, a large language ocean. A small river named Duden flows by their place and supplies it with the necessary regelialia. It is a paradisematic country, in which roasted parts of sentences fly into your mouth. Even the all-powerful Pointing has no control about the blind texts it is an almost unorthographic life One day however a small line of blind text by the name of Lorem Ipsum decided to leave for the far World of Grammar. The Big Oxmox advised her not to do so, because there were thousands of bad Commas, wild Question Marks and devious Semikoli, but the Little Blind Text didn’t listen. She packed her seven versalia, put her initial into the belt and made herself on the way.

Andrea is so professional and detail-oriented, while still being fun, friendly, and loving. She feels like she is your best friend as soon as you meet her!

She goes above and beyond in everything she does.


"Her excitement about being our photographer was contagious."

From the first meeting, we knew Andrea was an experienced photographer who was also warm and bubbly, which is the perfect type of person to have around you on your wedding day. She was extremely helpful with answering any questions we had, and was very responsive. Andrea is incredibly organized and efficient. She captured the best moments and got all the shots we wanted without making it feel like the photography was taking over the day. Working with her was a wonderful experience and I would highly recommend her!
